    HI Guys & Gals

    I eventualy got hold of an owners manual but it tell's me nothing it say it could be water in the fuel if it's a Diesel's, if not it could be miss fireing put new plug fire's fine.

    It also say if the light is continues their could be an engin control malfunction?

    Well my car is running better after the service than ever it running quiet I'm getting better milage I'm starting to think the light might have a short but if there's any body
    who can give me advice I'd appriciate it the last thing I need is my engine to pack in.

    the light I'm talking about is the orange engin same as that when you turn your ignition on.

    Maybe it's an electrical warning. Like a low charge rate or abnormal electrical output from the alternator. Just another guess really.

    best thing to do would be to plug in a nissan computer so that it can read the code, and it will tell u what is the error.

    because it can be many things.

    Hi Guys & Gal's

    I took Racer-x's advice and went to My Nearest Nissan Dealer Princess crossing to be exact on Ontdekkers Roodepoort.

    There I got something verry scare's good honest service no b/s the gentle
    men who helped me Friek Pluged a computer in to the car and 1 2 3 they reset the computer and the warning light was of.

    I asked Friek why it came on on the first place he said a number of things could happen it cool be a sensouir change in battery voltage out put
    car over heating and what happens is the computer record it all then eventual it think there is a problem with the car and put the light on.

    Some time they reset it and every thing is ok other times it will come back on then they know that there is a definit problem there and know what to address.

    He also said the new Path finder has the same feture but when it's light comes on the car's rev's drop to 1,5 and you cannot do anything till you take it to the dealer to check it out with the computer? would'nt want to be in the bush in that car when that happens.

    I'd like to thank Friek at Nissan Princess Crossing for his excelent service honesty and guess what guy's it didn't cost me 1 cent free service in 2009

    WELL DONE!

    Racer-x thanks for the tip
